Thread Name: Pagans v. Hell's Angels AGAIN!
Subject: RE: Pagans v. H.Angels AGAIN!
in a few hundred years we have gone from a society where the basic profile of guys like the Hell's Angels was a survival factor, to a society where that disposition is a detriment

And what does it say about us that so many non-Angel types are attracted to the trappings of violence and evil that surrounds this group? I suspect that membership no longer is predicated on the successful execution of a murder or rape, and that the Hells Angels has morphed into what you see on the web page I linked...a basic scheme to make money off the biker outlaw image. But the attraction for the average weekend Harley-owner to this image is what I find a fascinating phenomenon.
